VBox 4.3.40 1000MB RAM, no additions, VBEMP
I tested this against multiple versions of LibreOffice:
0.4.14-RC-102-gd186a9f vs LibreOffice184.108.40.206
None of these showed a blinking caret in the swriter Window.
I could type and with some additional delay the words became visible, but the caret was never blinking
I forgot to collect a log, but will attach one soon.
